Workshops Description

CSCW is a challenging and rapidly developing area of research where the exchange of ideas and discussion of concepts with other researchers provide an effective way of gaining new insights and identifying opportunities for possible collaborations.

The ECSCW 2023 Workshops provide an opportunity to engage in discussions with other researchers, present and illustrate new developments on different themes within CSCW, provoke and reflect on novel perspectives and receive feedback on early ideas in a friendly and constructive manner.

ECSCW 2023 invites workshop proposals addressing basic research questions, new methodologies and approaches, innovative technologies, and emerging research areas. Workshops are good venues for involving attendees in working together to share, reflect and develop new insights. Workshops may be half-day or full-day sessions. Outcomes might include journal special issues, blogs, or new collaborations.

We encourage accepted workshop organizers to create web-based resources for their workshops so that advertising, submission, and organization can be handled online.

If you are submitting a workshop on accessibility or assistive technology, please refer to the SIGACCESS guidelines on writing about disability.

Selection Process

Proposals will be single-blind reviewed by the Workshops Chairs and selected members of the ECSCW program committee. Selection will be based on the relevance of the proposed topic for ECSCW and the organizer(s) expertise.

Accepted workshops will need to provide an updated description of the workshop as well as workshop website, and details on position paper submission or other participation requirements, for publication on the conference website and in the EUSSET digital library.

Accepted workshops may provide an additional Workshop Program for publication in the ECSCW/EUSSET digital library. The program should contain the workshop title, 150 words abstract, objectives, participant names, and a body text and be no more than 2 pages.
